This dress is absolutely stunning! It is an eye catching dress that will definitely get you noticed and make you the life of any party! I have handmade this beauty using recycled knit clothing (t-shirts, shorts, fabric scraps, etc). I personally cut all the squares for the top of the dress, and each individual piece of fringe for the bottom half! I lined the inside of the dress using a pre-loved soft white woven sheet. Everything was pre-washed before construction. The halter straps, empire waistline, and upper back of dress incorporate elastic for comfort, stretch and fit.
